Drones are a game-changer on today’s battlefield. Being able to observe our enemies to gain intel from an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle creates a huge tactical advantage for our forces in the field. And it's up to the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Repairers to keep these aircraft ready to fly and collect and transmit critical information.
In this role, you will repair the Army National Guard aircraft's electrical, avionics, propulsion and fuel systems, and oversee maintenance of equipment wiring harnesses, electrical components, and radio frequency paths.
• Maintenance of optical payloads, weapons systems, electrical systems, radio frequency systems, and takeoff/landing systems
Some of the Skills You’ll Learn
• Electrical theory and system maintenance
• Troubleshooting procedures
• Preference for mathematics and shop mechanics
• Ability to work as a member on a team
• Working with electrical and electronic equipment
Through your training, you will develop the skills and experience for a civilian career with aircraft manufacturers, commercial airlines, and government agencies.
Earn While You Learn
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to train. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
Job training for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Repairers consists of 10 weeks of Basic Combat Training, where you'll learn basic Soldiering skills, and 17 weeks of Advanced Individual Training. Part of this time is spent in the classroom and part in the field.
